MARAM accredited training

Find the latest news and information about the MARAM accredited training for Quarter 1 2022-23.

What is MARAM accredited training?

The Centre for Workforce Excellence (CWE) Branch in System Reform and Workforce (DFFH) is working in partnership with the Department of Education and Training (DET), to develop vocational education and training (VET) courses in family violence.

This is aimed at building the knowledge, skills and capabilities of existing and future workforces to respond to and contribute to the prevention of family violence. These courses are the first accredited training courses to be directly based on the MARAM Framework and Family Violence Capability Frameworks.

What has been achieved so far?

On 1 April 2019, the Course in Identifying and Responding to Family Violence Risk (22510VIC) was accredited by the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA).

The single-unit course is currently being delivered by TAFEs, RTOs and dual sector universities, and is free for participants. The course can be taken either as a standalone course or the course unit (VU22733) can be imported within several VET courses.

On 1 August 2020, the Course in Intermediate Risk Assessment and Management of Family Violence Risk (22561VIC) was accredited by the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA).

This is a two-unit course which includes VU22733 as a pre-requisite, and a second unit (VU22988) that covers MARAM responsibilities 3 and 4 for intermediate risk assessment and management of victim-survivors and people using violence.

What is happening now?

A refreshed training approach for the Course in Identifying and Responding to Family Violence Risk (22510VIC) is currently being rolled out. This includes the provision of additional case studies, new assessments, and facilitator and learner guides to TAFEs and RTOs.

The second unit of the Course in Intermediate Risk Assessment and Management of Family Violence Risk (22561VIC) is currently being refreshed to reflect new practice guidance relating to working with adults using family violence. Broad industry consultation took place in May/June 2022.

What is planned next?

The refreshed Course in Intermediate Risk Assessment and Management of Family Violence Risk (22561VIC) is expected to be finalised and provided to the Steering Committee members in November 2022 for endorsement. VRQA approval of the unit is anticipated to occur in late 2022 or early 2023.
